The 2018Â AFL Final Series has begun. Hawthorn were outplayed by the Richmond Tigers on Thursday night in the first Elimination Final . The Tigers appear on track to win another Grand Final. Fans were treated to a thrilling game in front of a capacity crowd at a packedÂ MCG.
Last night the Melbourne Demons turned on aÂ powerful display of power footy to beat a hapless Geelong CatsÂ team. Jubilant fans and players were ignited with passion as the Demons faithful, wearing their football jumpers, jerseys, guernseys ,watched with delight as their team seized victory.
Today it is the turn of the Magpies to challenge an in form West Coast Eagles side over in Perth . Collingwood have travelledÂ but are confident of victory against the Eagles . The second elimination final isÂ between the Swans and Giants being played in Sydney. Will they get a sell out crowd? In a city that predominantly follows NRL it will be an interesting marketing exercise for the AFL. Local loyal fans will be at the game wearing their AFL footy jumpers, jerseys, guernseysÂ barracking loudly and hoping their team will be the winner.
Exciting times on and off the field and fans, spectators, commentators and the general public are lovingÂ the action. Teams not in the finals are rebuilding, letting players go, trading or watching older players retire. September is finals month in the AFL and already it is providing quite a spectacle.
